Dear Michel, Thank you for completing the survey regarding your recent stay at our property. By telling us what you liked about your stay and how we can improve, you are helping us deliver a superior experience for you and other guests in the future. In the time of your booking, the information about the parking spots by booking only was very clear and yet, you chose a non refundable restrictive reservation without checking the availability on site first. For any additional requests, don't hesitate to contact directly the hotel. In our way, that is the best solution to prepare your stay. If we can be of assistance in the future, please call us at Best Regards, Filipe Best Western Citadelle Besancon

Dear Chen, Thank you for giving us your feeback regarding you stay stay. We are both sorry and very surprised about the points you reproach us. Indeed, we are not at all at 30minutes by walk from the city center, since we ARE in the city center. We are 5min by foot from the pedestrian streets. Also, we have someone responsible of the breakfast, who is always here to welcome our clients. It might happen that every tables are not ready if everyone left at the same time, but our buffet is always full for everyone to be able to choose what they want to eat. We only have one person at the breakfast service, so she can not do everything in 5 minutes, but she surely does everything in time. Best regards, Alexandra
